High School Placement

We prepare students for life after Highlands through a transformative educational partnership that fosters perseverance and persistence. Our graduates leave with a sense of self that allows them to take responsibility for their academic journey and follow their own moral compass. This process is exemplified through our Portrait of a Highlands Graduate — a leader, a citizen, a pioneer and an individual. Highlands graduates are ready to take risks, help their neighbor and pursue their passions.

In whatever community our students find themselves, their time as Highlands students provides them with the skills needed to think critically and creatively, collaborate cooperatively with team members and communicate in an impactful way.
